Have a 'Sweet' Lawn Fawn Christmas!!

**Before I get to my post - I just want to take the time to express how deeply sad I am about the events that took place last Fri 12-14-12  at Sandy Hook Elementary in CT - my deepest thoughts and prayers are with the children  families that were taken from the world WAY too soon - and the heros that played a part in trying to shield those children from harm.  May you all Rest In Peace!**

Hi all!! We are a week away from celebrating Christmas!  Can you believe it!!  I am not done with shopping either - but luckily I won't be seeing some of my family right at Christmas - so I still have a little time to buy what is left on my list :)  Today, I wanted to share with you a Christmas card I made using my beloved Lawn Fawn stamps :)  If you follow me regularly - you know how much I adore all things Lawn Fawn - and that I feel my stamp collection wouldn't be the same without Lawn Fawn in it.

I love the set Sweet Christmas.  How fun are these images to create your own ginger bread house with the ginger bread men and woman :)

I started with a piece of white card stock slightly smaller than a A2 size card.  I have this peppermint background stamp that just screams to be embossed!!  I stamped out two of the Christmas Trees in a chevron patterned paper.  I then stamped/embossed the gingerbread in white onto kraft card stock and 'fussy' them and then added a bit of color with some of my Memento Markers.  I popped all of those pieces on my white background piece with dimensionals.  For some fun - I stamped out the sentiment in black, green and red for something different instead of straight black onto a die cut piece using one of my Sizzix Framelits from Stampin' Up.  To finish up the card - I added some red grosgrain ribbon with green stitching to "tie" everything together - and mounted my panel onto a piece of kraft card stock.

I am not sure if I will get to post another project for all of you before Christmas - so from me to all of you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!


  1. Cute, cute, cute!! This is such a happy & cheerful Christmas card. Love the ribbon!

    My heart is just broken for the kids. I don't think my brain can fully wrap around what happened. This world scares me more & more lately. Hugs to you.

  2. Love this cute card, Kari!! You did an amazing work!

    People in Spain is really sad about all that... I can't imagine how all those families and friends are feeling. So so sad :(

  3. Agreed Kari, I don't know why anyone would ever do such a thing, so tragic. :(

    On the upside, your card is lovely!
